for netanyahu but barack obama on this issue. the supreme leader under the pressure of sanctions will decide to accept meaningful curbs on his nuclear program, or the president is going to have to decide. what does he do about a program that is approaching nuclear weapons threshold? >> if we look at the nomination and likely confirmation of a new secretary of state john kerry and chuck hagel at defense however problematic that confirmation hearing goes, what do you think the president is saying with this new national security team about what he wants to accomplish in the world in a second term? >> well, i think in the case of senator hagel, i think he will be confirmed. i think the choice there fits very well with what the president said in his inaugural speech he mentioned a decade of war is ending. his job will be to get u.s. armed forces out of afghanistan in a responsible way but to get them out. and then to look at cutting the defense budget. i think those are the two principle responsibilities that the president wants to see him fulfill. and hagel is the right man for that kind of job.
by congress, though mr. obama issued a number of executive orders based upon the. lori: thank you. fox news senior white house correspondent. there are reports the president is considering colorado lt. governor joe garcia as the top candid to be his next labor secretary. it held the silas intends to leave the post. job as plans about the only economic news. personal income rose so sharply. income rising number two and a half percent, the largest monthly gain in eight years. that number surging to six -- almost 7%. so the largest increase, and this is important. it is fueled by early dividend payouts to beat the rise in tax rates, all that the scope of negotiating and one on. on wall street it was of flat day, but a pretty good month. now, s&p, and nasdaq armadas de lower with volume approaching 4 billion shares. much brighter picture for the month of january. but chavez 6% from the nasdaq 4%, and s&p five. commodities. gold lost more than $14 an ounce on the month closing a $1,660 per ounce. oil prices moved higher, closing at $97.49, up $5.67 a month. checking treasurys got looking upon de
? >> extraordinarily well, andrea. good afternoon. as a matter of fact, this issue is of vital importance to literally millions of people in the united states. we have to remember that for the past four years there have been a record number of deportations under the obama administration. record now 1.8 million people have been deported. the border is more secure than it's ever been in o'our recent history, and the fact of the matter is that something like this which deals with issues like the border, it deals with what to do with the broken legal immigration system, both sides agree that it's broken, but also deals in a humane matter with 11 million people who are here without their documents and who have been here for many years, many of them have children here, have grandchildren here and have contributed to this society and to this economy for many, many decades. this is something extremely well received. >> the politics of this, republicans as john mccain was the first to say yesterday, republicans have to deal with the facts of life here. now, ironically, if john mccain and lindsey graham and oth
be aryaning on immigration reform, but it's so tricky that president obama is expected to issue few if any ultimatums in las vegas. eight sfenators, four from each party unveiled their step toward an agreement. conservatives aren't happy with it rerks jekting it as a form of amnesty. lawmakers are said to be working on a plan of their own. white house correspondent brianna keilar is looking at it. >> reporter: in 2011 president obama went to the border town of el paso to press for comprehensive immigration reform. >> out of many, one. we define ourselves as a nation of immigrants. >> reporter: that went nowhere. now in a second term, the president is trying it again, heading to las vegas today to push for border security, a verification system for workers and punishment if they don't and the most significant and controversial part of the president's plan, a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants. it includes registering with the government, undergoing background check, paying taxes and a penalty, and learning english. a solution has alluded past presidents including george w. b
. it wasn't easy. >> president obama, mr. wiesel, issued a statement, i'm sure you're aware saying in part, quote, the united states, along with the international community resolves to stand in the way of any tyrant or dictator who commits crimes against humanity and stay true to the principle of never again. syria right now in crisis, thousands of civilians killed at the hands of government forces in that country. let's start in syria. is the united states doing enough right now there? >> president obama is sensitive to that tragedy, to the memory of that tragedy. he asked me to accompany him the first time to the washington in washington and each time he was flow foundly moved and shaken, and i am convinced, deeply convinced, when he makes such a pledge, he means to keep it. something must be done to stop the bloodshed, the mass murders which are still going on in this world. if anyone had told me, when i was liberated in 1945 by the american army, that i would still have to fight racism, hatred and if a naftcism and violence, i wouldn't have believed it, and here we are, we still have t
. >> if fox news and i are the only thing keeping the republicans from caving to barack obama on every issue, i'm not paid enough. >> it almost seems to be on parity about a president complaining about the conservative press and going the other way and talking to the people saying the conservative press is doing it wrong. in an interview with the new republic, rather than be focused on the employment situation or the debt, the big problems that obama has are fox news and me. obama said to the new republic, he's getting a lot more done without fox news and rush limbaugh, and the rest of the media is in the tank and the rest of the media has fallen in line. there is no opposition, other than fox news and limbaugh. >> one of the reasons that fox news and i stand stand out like sore thumbs is the rest of the media is gone, in the tank, and the rest of the media long ago ceased doing their job, they're not holding obama accountable, they're on board. they are part of the agenda advancement team. >> greta: so why is the the president singling out and blaming fox for a lack of bipartisanship in was
at a bill to enact part of president obama's gun control plan. dianne feinstein plans to issue legislation today to enact a new ban on assault weapons. it will also ban high capacity ammunition magazines and would strengthen background checks for aspiring gun owners. >> looking at the first television interview with manti te'o over the hoax involving an online girlfriend who it turns out never existed. >> he told katie couric that he had no part in the hoax and it did not know that he had been duped until early last month. put yourself in my situation. my whole world told me that she died on september 12. >> she also interviewed his parents, who said their son is not a liar. you can watch the entire interview today at 4:00 p.m. right here on abc 7. >> relearning of a separate internet hoax targeting some of the redskins players. nfl security compleconducted a securities search involving a woman named sandy ackerman who used pictures of an adult entertainer to establish relationships with pro athletes. the conversations mainly took place through twitter. in some instances she sent photograp
for and cherished and always safe from harm. >> president obama raised the issue of guns in america in his inauguration speech. dana, when we spoke last about guns it got fiery as it has done throughout this debate. the thing i was disappointed in you about was not the specifics of the individual proposals but the fact that you blanket said you wouldn't endorse anything he said about any type of gun control. now you have time to think about that. was there nothing that the president came out with any of the 23 executive orders or other proposals that you could at least consider? >> well, one of the interesting things about this, piers, is you asked me if i liked any of these. several of these 23 executive actions that the president had actually proposed are actions that democrats have actively ridiculed for four years. including nra. >> why would you not like background checks? >> who said i didn't like background checks? >> hold on. i asked you last time is there anything in this that you liked. and then you said there was nothing. now you said you may like background checks. did you misl
on women, peace, and security. >> i do. and i actually was reading it last night. president obama issued that and i think it's really important. with respect to afghanistan, we have made it clear, the administration has made it clear, and i will support that when i become secretary of state, and that is commitment -- that is the commitment if there is a negotiation with the taliban, one of the conditions is they have to give up any association with al qaeda. they have to give up the commitment -- commit to nonviolence, but most importantly with respect to this issue, they must commit to respect the constitution of afghanistan and the current status of women and girls within their society. >> i have two more questions. you have been a supporter of see call before, the convention to eliminate all forms of discrimination against women. i know it's a tough issue here. i don't think it should be, but it is. i just want to make sure you continue to support the radfication, then i have one quick question on the subject. >> the answer is yes. let me just say on that i look forward to meeting wit
the republicans from caving to barack obama on every issue, i am not paid enough. >> it is almost unparitiy, talking to the press and saying it is conservative press is doing it on. >> in an interview with "the new republic," rather than be focused on the employment situation or the debt, the big problems that obama has are fox news and me. obama said to "the new republic," he would get a lot more done without fox news and rush limbaugh. the rest of the media's in the tank. everybody else has fallen in line. there is no opposition. other than fox news and limbaugh. one of the reasons that fox news and i stand out like sore thumbs here is because the rest of the media is gone, they're in the tank, they have long ago ceased doing their job. they are not reporting, they are not curious, they are not holding obama accountable. they are on board. they are part of the agenda advancement team. >> why is the president singling out and blaming fox for a lack of bipartisanship in washington? chief political respondent byron york joins us. is fox guilty? or he doesn't like how fox challenges his polic
it matters. so jimmy, president obama taking this issue of immigration on the road today. he did so, though, back in 2011 without a lot of success. but today, dan pfeiffer is tweeting out that the president will applaud the bipartisan senate agreement, saying it's consistent with his long-held view. but jimmy, this bill is not a sure thing in the senate, let alone the house. so explain why there is con flicking uniformity on this. >> well, listen. i think it's great that the six senator who is got up on the podium yesterday and said that they have a framework for an agreement for a framework to get immigration done, is great. the problem is this. the problem is -- and that's a great first step, but you've got to put it down on paper. and once you start putting things down on paper, you actually start writing legislation. and then you ask members to start voting on this legislation, and that's when it gets remarkably murkier in the building behind me. think about it in 2007. you know, you had 22 republicans that are currently sitting in the united states senate today who voted against bush's
of that is acting on issues they most care about, these are issues that fit the obama coalition. if they can cement that in on a national scale, the republicans are in trouble. >> and margaret, you would agree the president believes this. it's not just politics. he believes in all of these things. >> i think so. i think he's sincere. i don't think there's anything insincere in saying that. it's politically convenient. >> fascinating days. appreciate you being with us. let us know what you think. we're talking about it on twitter. ahead tonight, her face belonged to manti te'o. the image of the perfect girlfriend. fictitious noti fictitious girlfriend we now know. >>> murder of four americans in libya. secretary clinton's fiery day on capitol hill. >> with all due respect, the fact is we had four dead americans. was it because of a protest or guys out for a walk that decided to go out and kill americans. what difference at this point does it make? it's our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, senator. with so much competition, finding the
of obama policy i take the issue with. the lack of transparency. the civilians we kill human soldiers also. sometimes accidentally or not. kill civilians, as well. humans can do what robots are doing. it gets american soldiers out of the way but having robots kill civilians and sometimes then reclassifying them as enemy combatants that makes me very uncomfortable. i mean, the drones are ultimately imprecise and not necessarily because the technology but the intelligence. right? a drone could say, kill this table and just blow up the table and not blow up that camera. but how do we know exactly who's going to be sitting at the table and steve didn't call out sick today and capehart is there and we didn't get steve. >> thank god for that. >> you know? but i mean what ultimately makes me uncomfortable is robotic warfare really easy decision to make. there should be a challenge for human beings to say let's go to war because there's blood going to be on people's hands. werner vous about it. i think the legal case and international issue is really sort of easy to sort of bre
of an issue. >> obama is seeking political victory. obama doesn't care about enforcing existing law. so people say why will he enforce anything that is new. >> once again, limbaugh is clearly delusional. one of the reasons we need immigration reform is because there were a record number of deportations last year. president obama has presided over 1.5 million deportations in four years. it took w. eight years to deport 2 million people. but marco rubio still went on air with the peddler of lies to kick obama on immigration. >> obama is not going to be president forever. as long as the next four years may seem, he won't be president forever. we have to write laws with that in mind as well. >> president obama agrees with marco rubio and other senators on almost every aspect of immigration reform. but republicans are not doing this because they are interested in real reform. john mccain actually told us the truth. they are doing it so they can win elections. meanwhile, our current immigration fiasco takes a tremendous toll. now, listen to some of the callers on my radio show who told me how the cu
it to the table. so, it's complicated issue, guys and one that i thought might come up after president obama was safely re-elected and it is. it's coming up. i think it's worth getting some of the issues out on the table. one, there are the humanitarian concerns, of course. hundreds if not thousands dead. many children, many innocent civilians. two, the legal issues. what's happening with due process here? how are we now killing sometimes american citizens without due process, without bringing them back, charging them, trying them, that sort of thing? there's also the issue of hypocrisy. and now invisible anti-war movement that begged for george w. bush's impeachment in some cases has been silent on this issue but i think the one that's most important is the issue of policy implication because as hawkish as you might be, right, or i might be, you can sort of say, well, forget the human taryn issues, war is war. you could say forget the legal issues. i can justify a lot of things in the time of war and willing to overlook the highway pk sy. the one to care about is plitd call implementation o
the headline president obama is not pleased. he speaks about the issue of guns and tries to express his understanding of the cultural divide over the issue of guns. calling it the reality of rural versus urban divide on the issue. he says if you grew up and your dad gave you a hunting rifle when you were 10 and you spent the day with him and your uncles and ta became part of the family tradition you can see why you would be protective of that. he says advocates of gun control have to listen more. he also speaks about the fact that he has been skeet shooting all the time at camp david daying he does that with guests. i think that is new information for a lot of people. the question is have you ever fired a gun before? that's not where he finishes off. he fires off on other topics, as well, expressing his impatience with political enemies of sorts some republicans who he he thinks are unwilling to compromise and with the media that too often goes to the sides and never looks for the middle ground a it addresses them, as well. and he weighs in on the issue of football. he said if he had a
that he is mapping out in the past. of course, this is an issue that president obama has been talking about since 2008, he said that it's one of his great regret that's has not gotten comprehensive immigration reform done. you will see him pushing to get it done in the second is term. in terms of what he has talked about in the past, he has talked about the need to improve security at the border and he talked about the need to hold businesses accountable. those that hire undocumented workers as well as making america sort of more inviting to those who study here, making it a better place for them to get their degrees, and stay here once undocumented people do get their degrees, and then of course the more controversial point of a path to citizenship. he has argued for this. a lot of republicans disagree, they do not think there should be a path to citizenship. this has been a sticking point in the past t conventional wisdom is that there's an appetite to get something done not just to part of the president but on the part of republicans, in large parted, craig, if you look at the 2012
.m. eastern time. a little more than a week after highlighting the issue during his inauguration speech, president obama laid out his plan for immigration reform. the image of a campaign speech, the president went to north dakota where the hispanic population is 20%. >> the good news is for the first time in many years, republicans and democrats seem ready to tackle this problem together. this moment it looks like there's a genuine desire to get this done soon. that's very encouraging. but this time action must follow. we can't allow immigration reform to get bogged down in an endless debate. we have been debating this for a long time. the principles are pretty straight forward. first, i believe we need to stay focused on enforcement. that means continue k to strengthening security at our borders. we need to implement a national system that allows businesses to quickly and accurately verify someone's employment status. second, we have to deal with the 11 million individuals who are here illegally. we all agree that these men and women should have to earn their way to citizenship. but fo
on women, peace, and security. >> i did. i read last night that president obama issued to that. i think it is important. with respect to afghanistan, the administration has made it clear -- the commitment that if there is in negotiation with the taliban, one of the conditions is they have to give up any association with al qaeda. with respect to this issue, they must commit to respect the constitution of afghanistan and the current status of women and girls within their society. >> you have been a supporter of the convention to eliminate all forms of discrimination against women. it is a tough issue. i want to make sure you continue to support the ratification. >> the answer is yes. i look forward to meeting with the committee probably so we can talk about treaties and america's interest. >> i think there could be some reservation that we could agree on that would resolve some of the underlying current of this agreement. we should move forward on that. last question is about the keystone xl pipeline. how would you ensure any decision takes into consideration the potential impact on wate
from illinois brought a bi-partisan element to the obama administration. the president issued a statement thanking lahood for his dedication, hard work, and years of service to the american people. secretary lahood said he'll stay on the job until his replacement is confirmed. it took 16 doctors an 13 hours of surgery but an iraq war vet who lost both his arms in combat has a new lease on life. brendan marrocco is just the 7th person in the united states to undergo a rare double arm transplant surgery. he lost his arms and legs in 2009 when an armored vehicle he was driving was hit by a roadside explosion in iraq. marrocco says the surgery is like a new beginning for his life. it has given me a lot of hope for the future. i feel like i am getting a second chance to start over after i got hurt. the complicated surgery done at johns hopkins hospital involved taking limbs from a deceased person and attatching them to morrocco. he does not have full feeling in his new arms, but he can already text and comb his hair. morrocco says he is most looking forward to driving his dodge ch
made the appointments and president obama wants them to stick, but a bigger issue, they made hundreds, more than 300 decisions with these members on this panel, and the court, the district court or the appellate court ruled that they're not only wrong and illegal, null and void, that it actually is a breach of our constitution, so, who's impacted by the decisions that are no longer in play? >> it's unclear what will happen to the decisions particularly if there's appeal to the supreme court. the vacating of those decisions could itself be stayed. but, look, this is an extraordinary decision by the d.c. circuit. it overturns over 100 years of precedent. every single president, republican and democrat, during the last hundred years, 150 years, has made these kind of recess appointments, and what the court said yesterday was na the president's constitutional power is limited to extremely narrow window between when congress goes out of session at the end of each year or when you're between congresses, what was going on here was that the house was refusing to go out of session solely for t
change, a lot of voters do, but these are issues that fit the obama coalition. if they can cement that in on a national scale, the republicans are in trouble. >> and margaret, you would agree the president believes this. it's not just politics. he believes in all of these things. >> i think so. i think he's sincere. i think he's earnest. i don't think there's anything insincere about saying that seneca falls, selma and stonewall. i think it's consistent with what he's stood for and it's also very politically convenient. >> it's fascinating days. congresswoman tammy duckworth, appreciate you being with us. margaret hoover, john king. let us know what you think. we're talking about it on twitter. @andersoncooper. >>> ahead tonight, her face belonged to manti te'o. she was the image of the perfect girlfriend. his fictitious girlfriend we now know. we're going to talk to the real woman whose stolen image stole his heart allegedly. >>> and next, on a much more serious note, the murder of four americans in libya and secretary of state clinton's fiery day on capitol hill. >> with all due
reform as president obama heads to las vegas to talk about the issue. before leaving, the president about itsestions foreign policy record alongside his secretary of state hillary clinton. that's where we begin this morning with you. we want to hear your thoughts on the role of the u.s. on the world stage. give us a call this morning on the democratic line, the republican line, and the independent. 585-u're outside the u.s., 3883. you can reach us on facebook or twitter or e-mail. good monday morning to you. we want to start with the interview with president obama and secretary of state hillary clinton from last night that appeared on "60 minutes." here's how it played in a couple papers from around the country. here's the new york times headline -- and the culpeper star has -- i want to read you from the story that was in the hill newspaper this morning, the congressional newspaper here in washington. what we want to do now is take you to a clip from last night of that interview. here is president obama. [video clip] >> we helped to put together and lay the groundwork for liberating liby
. i read last night that president obama issued to that. i think it is important. with respect to afghanistan, the administration has made it clear -- the commitment that if there is in negotiation with the taliban, one of the conditions is they have to give up any association with al qaeda. with respect to this issue, they must commit to respect the constitution of afghanistan and the current status of women and girls within their society. >> you have been a supporter of the convention to eliminate all forms of discrimination against women. it is a tough issue. i want to make sure you continue to support the ratification. >> the answer is yes. i look forward to meeting with the committee probably so we can talk about treaties and america's interest. >> i think there could be some reservation that we could agree on that would resolve some of the underlying current of this agreement. we should move forward on that. last question is about the keystone xl pipeline. how would you ensure any decision takes into consideration the potential impact on water and air quality and mitigate
the obama administration is focused on domestic issues, nation building and home. that's a tough task for the secretary to. lou: and the u.k., the foreign minister has a great sense of humor because he just a day after secretary clinton had testified to warn the u.k. citizens of the dangers of benghazi. that had to be -- somebody there had to be just laughing as the issue that warning. >> that is a pretty serious warning. lou: i understand the warning is, but the timing is incredible. >> just announced yet been gauzy is not a problem. i found those hearings is today just appalling. all the senators and congressmen should have asked for the tough questions. didn't. one after another they asked her about all the things that had gone before. she said for months the rate for those questions and should better than none of the park. what they fail to save her, why hasn't anybody gone after the people responsible for benghazi? the same people who are now doing the algerian attack, why have we not. lou: on december 201st there was this to say about the fact that the obama administration had n
time trying to treat this as a political issue of going after democrats, obama, hillary, susan rice, than actually finding out who is responsible and what we should do about it. and so, you know, i think her outburst is not an outburst. it's a reflection of what we all think about this. if you were going to be real about these issues, you would be asking what can we do to beef up the security. something gop members have already cut, you know, and they have decisions to cut it now in these days as we're speaking. it's rank hypocrisy. i think it's a fresh breath of air that people -- >> i agree with you about the hypocrisy because i remember 9/11 very clearly, and i remember how this country rallied around a president who had limited ability, but we all rallied around him. the first reaction was he says we're going to get the people who knocked down this building, and everybody cheered him. they weren't saying how did you screw it up, buddy? it was about unity. the left and center are much better at national unity than the right. the right sees a national tragedy like this far off in
